1894 N142 Duke Cabinet Ed Delahanty

Starting Bid - $2,000, Sold For - $15,275

Graded GOOD 30 by SGC. The N142 Duke Cabinet is perhaps the most impressive card ever produced of Hall of Famer Ed Delahanty, one of the nineteenth century's greatest stars. It is rare to find any N142 in such extraordinary high grade, let alone Ed Delahanty. This card has a much stronger appearance than suggested by its SGC assigned grade. It has been downgraded by SGC due to having the initials (apparently of the original owner) “J.C.M.” neatly written in small letters at the top of the blank reverse. It is otherwise in spectacular Excellent condition. The card has just the slightest hint of edge and corner wear, and is otherwise in virtually flawless condition, crisp and clean, with perfectly bold colors, and a virtually perfect surface. This is a beautiful card! There are very few cards of Delahanty, as his career spanned the years 1888 to 1903. While he does appear in the N172 Old Judge series, the heart of his career was in the 1890s, a decade during which very few baseball card sets were issued. This is an extraordinary example of what is arguably the most majestic and striking of all Ed Delahanty cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $5,000+. SOLD FOR $15,275
